The 20 inch zip arrived this morning so I inserted it.
So knitted sleeves, woven body panels and some grey needlecord to make up the required fabric. Not the world's best piece of sewing but it does fit and it is very warm. This exercise can rightly be described as a displacement activity because it enables me to put off trying to sew velvet. Oh well, the jerkin is finished so I will have to get on with it.
The foreground trees are in my garden but the huge conifer (40 to 50 foot) is in my neighbour's garden. It is smothered in the pink flowers of clematis Montana. Interesting because I don't believe they can see it whereas we get a lovely view. In the background to the left you can just make out the Malvern Hills under low cloud.
